Boffins achieve greater precision in determining meteorites' age

Scientists have aged dated a group of meteorites with far greater precision than previously possible - by using a different type of radioactive dating on a particularly difficult type of specimen to study.

Researchers have aged dated a very important group of meteorites with far greater precision than previously possible by using a different type of radioactive dating on a particularly difficult type of specimen to study.
The project found that the asteroid from which ureilite meteorites are derived differentiated - or separated into parts of different composition - within 5 million years of the formation of the Solar System, said Cyrena Anne Goodrich, senior scientist at the Planetary Science Institute.
